Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


A colleague had a freak accident, getting off a bus and being caught by the bottom step of the bus when it started moving before she was clear of the bus. A long cut the length of her lower leg resulted in the need for 100 stitches and staples. Both her feet were run over twice -- by the back wheels of the bus. Luckily no bones were broken.

We did extensive lymphatic drainage work on her about two weeks after the accident, two sessions. She had a ridge of tough tissue 1/2 inch wide and 1/2 inch tall, about 8 inches long where the stitches and staples were.

After the second session we added a spritzer bottle for home care, with a total of 80 drops of Helichrysum, Myrrh, Frankincense, the Purification oil blend, Lavender and Geranium in 2 oz of water. 2 minutes after the first spray application, the ridge of tissue completely flattened out and her lymph system accepted a huge amount of fluid, allowing her to flex her toes for the first time.

The oil formula helped accelerate her healing: she was scheduled to have her staples removed 5 days later, and had to call the doctor's office to have them taken out the next day after she began using the spritzer because the healing was happening so fast.

We're still monitoring her progress.

Supporting Scientific Studies
1.Associated topics: wound — "The methods of aromatherapy were applied sitz bath or soap application using essential oils with Lavender, Myrrh, Neroli, Rose, Grapefruit, Mandarin, Orange, and Roman Chamomile.... [T]hese findings indicate that postpartum aromatherapy for perineal care could be effective in healing the perineum."Link
2.Associated topics: edema — "[W]e studied the anti-inflammatory and gastroprotective effects of C. citratus [Lemongrass] and E. citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus] essential oils on formol-induced edema and acetic acid induced abdominal cramps in Wistar rats.... In vivo analysis and histological assay showed that the two essential oils displayed significant dose-dependent edema [swelling] inhibition effect over time. They displayed strong analgesic [pain-relieving] and antipyretic [fever-reducing] properties similar to that induced by 50 mg/kg of acetylsalicylate of lysine.... This work demonstrates the anti-inflammatory property of Cymbopogon citratus [Lemongrass] and Eucalyptus citriodora [Lemon Eucalyptus], suggesting their potential role as adjuvant therapeutic alternatives in dealing with inflammatory-related diseases."Link
3.Associated topics: skin — "Local application of frankincense essential oil may provide a non-surgical treatment alternative, with no or minimal side effect for carcinoma in situ, minimally invasive carcinoma and pre-cancerous conditions such as actinic keratosis."Link
4.Associated topics: wound — "DHEA [a component of PD 80/20], an androstene hormone [precursor to estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, cortisone, and other hormones], has been shown to possess a wide range of beneficial biological effects mainly attributed to immune system modulation.... thus leading to beneficial effects in diverse human diseases including resistance to infection, neuroprotection, wound healing, diabetes, hepatic injury, cardiovascular disease, and cancer."Link
5.Associated topics: skin — "[M]any curative properties attributed to various plants in indigenous medicine are also present in their essential oils.... These oils exert a number of general effects from the pharmacological viewpoint. When applied locally, the essential oils mix readily with skin oils, allowing these to attack the infective agents quickly and actively.... In vitro studies [were] conducted by the author on antimicrobial and anthelmintic [destructive to parasitic worms] properties of some essential oils...."Link
6.Associated topics: wound — "Lavender essential oil has been used as an anxiolytic [anxiety] drug, a mood stabilizer, a sedative, spasmolytic [muscle spasms], antihypertensive [high blood pressure], antimicrobial, analgesic [pain] agent as well as a wound healing accelerator.... The present study suggests that inhalation of lavender essential oil may be an effective and safe treatment modality in acute management of migraine headaches."Link
7.Associated topics: wound,cuts — "[A] literature review of evidence on the influence of essential oils on wound healing and their potential application in clinical practice... focus[ing] mainly on tea tree, lavender, chamomile, thyme, and ocimum [basil] oils."Link
8.Associated topics: wound — "Melaleuca Alternifolia [tea tree] Hydrogel... was compared with tap water as a coolant following application onto a fresh, deep, partial-thickness hot water burn.... Effective cooling of the burn wound and an increased rate of wound healing was achieved by both repeated tap water compresses and by immediate or delayed application of Melaleuca Hydrogel. Cooling is an effective means to reduce tissue damage and increase wound healing."Link
